Changes at the Park

 Since the three day rain earlier this week Phillippi Lake was birthed at the Pinecraft Park.

 This picnic spot was lost to the Phillippi Lake. On hot summer days we can sit and spit at the table ans cooling out hot feet in the water. 
 
 The south end of the Lake has some Mud Flats.

 The Phillippi Creek is now the Phillippi River. It is wide and deep enough for speed boats to roar up and down.

 We now have a new pond, going by the name of Bocce Ball Pond, as that is the exact place where the new pond is.

Ducks and other shore birds take advantage of the lake. Tonight there was a Roseate Spoonbill feeding on this body of water. I didn't get a picture of it as it was up and gone before I got close enough to get a good shot.

Tonight I went back to the park again just to enjoy the beautiful evening. Shuffleboard was in session.
 
 I tried to get some action shots tonight. I don't know who this man is, but he aimed and shot with great care.

It was a good day. After three days of rain I couldn't get enough of the beautiful day.
